Coming Next: TSA Electric Shock Bracelets?

DHS seriously explored idea of forcing travelers to wear torture compliance device

The TSA’s security policies are getting more and more bizarre, from testing people’s drinks for explosives to ordering all travelers to freeze on command, but could a frightening policy that was seriously explored by the DHS be resurrected – forcing people to wear taser bracelets that would deliver an electric shock if they got out of line?

The story sounds like it belongs in a South Park episode or on an urban myths website – but it was actually true.

In 2008, the Washington Times reported on how DHS official Paul S. Ruwaldt of the Science and Technology Directorate, office of Research and Development, wrote to Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. indicating that the Department of Homeland Security was ready to purchase devices from the company that would be used to deliver incapacitating shocks to airline passengers, all of whom would be mandated to wear the taser bracelet once they checked in for their flight.

The so-called “safety bracelet,” also known as the Electronic ID Bracelet, was designed to replace a boarding pass and be capable of tracking the passenger through the airport by means of GPS technology. The device would also contain details about the passenger and their flight plans.

The primary function of the device was to allow airport officials and flight crews to deliver an incapacitating electric shock to travelers by means of Electro-Muscular Disruption (EMD), completely immobilizing the individual for minutes. The bracelet would be worn by all travelers until they disembarked at their location. The patent for the device admits that all passengers could be incapacitated if the devices are activated.

“Upon activation of the electric shock device, through receipt of an activating signal from the selectively operable remote control means, the passenger wearing that particular bracelet receives the disabling electrical shock from the electric shock device. Accordingly, the passenger becomes incapacitated for a few seconds or perhaps a few minutes, during which time the passenger can be fully subdued and handcuffed, if necessary. Depending on the type of transmission medium used to send the activating signal, other passengers may also become temporarily incapacitated, which is undesirable and unfortunate, but may be unavoidable,” reads the patent for the device.

In his letter to Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc., DHS official Ruwaldt also noted how the bracelet could be used as a “method of interrogation,” in other words a torture device. He also raised the prospect of using the device against protesters to allow the temporary “restraint of large numbers of individuals in open area environments by a small number of agents or Law Enforcement Officers.”

The letter stated that the DHS was “interested in…. the immobilizing security bracelet” and that it was “conceivable to envision a use to improve air security, on passenger planes.” Other letters made it clear that the DOD, the CDC, Department of Interior, Department of Agriculture Forestry service, as well as unnamed law enforcement agencies were also keen on acquiring the device.

Following a wave of negative publicity, the DHS pulled the plug on its interest in the torture bracelet, and Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. set about removing the letters from Ruwaldt it had previously proudly displayed on its website.

However, given that the TSA is already doling out punishments for people who do not display the proper level of obedience, by either preventing them from flying, stealing their cash, or simply punching them in the balls, how far away are we from the hideous idea of the taser bracelet being resurrected? Especially given the heights of absurdity the TSA has already scaled by introducing its ludicrous “all stop” policy and its testing of drinks purchased inside the secure area of the airport?

The fact that the torture bracelet was ever seriously considered at all should send chills down the spine of every American who values their dignity, especially given the endless train of TSA abuse stories that pour in on a weekly basis.

Imagine a TSA goon not only having the power to squeeze your junk if you so much as look at them the wrong way, but also having the capability to deliver an electric shock to anyone who speaks out of turn. It’s a nightmare scenario, and another clear indication that the TSA is an odious insult to the very notion of America as a free country and needs to be defunded and ultimately abolished.

Given a recent survey which found that a majority of travelers were happy with the TSA’s performance and also In the interests of discovering exactly what level of indignity Americans will tolerate, Infowars is set to commission a poll to find out what passengers will tolerate when going through TSA checkpoints.

One of the questions will ask if Americans, given the apparent threat posed by terrorists who implant bombs in their own bodies, are willing to submit to an anal cavity search in order to fly. Although this sounds bizarre, we feel confident that a sizeable number would agree to it. Likewise, the idea of forcing travelers to wear a taser bracelet capable of delivering an electric shock is another question that will be included in the poll – which will be conducted by a professional polling agency.

It won't be long before we have something like this embedded in our bodies. Absolute behavior control & modification is the ultimate goal of the nanny state.

Ya know, people always thought how cool it would be to have some of the technology from Star Trek, I don't really think this is what they had in mind.

Of course, if these get implemented, it's only a short hop to the next stage.

This has got to be the dumbest, most half-assed, idea I've heard yet. They're currently providing the protection of a revolving door, evident by the recent stories of people carrying weapons on board accidentally... and now they want to shock us? Need I point out that gone are the days of bombs detonating by lighting a fuse, now most modern explosives are set off with... an electrical charge!

Hell, anyone with half a brain and a slight modicum of tactical planning would target the security checkpoints now anyway. I'm pretty sure that you would be able to net more casualties and fear across a wider audience if one of those got targeted instead of a flight.

I kept looking at the torso pic of the woman and read about "IMPLANTS" that you wrote. It probably took me a full two minutes to realize the picture was about the collar around the neck and you didn't type implant but implement...Big Grin

If you stop to think about how this would be implemented it's even scarier than it appears on the surface. Does anyone here think that they'll have a system where they can just target an individual bracelet quickly? Nope, they'll hit a panic button and all bracelets within range will be activated. I'm sure granny's pacemaker won't have a problem with such a shock. I'm sure this would be a great thing to be placing on children as well.

Try anyone who has a heart condition, identified or not. Instant heart attacks for say 10 people because someone cut in front of a line will make a really great headline. Angry

Not too many news stories that make me sick to my stomach thinking about them. Congrats, you found one. Founding fathers are rolling in their graves tearing their eyes out right now.
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.
